Poly Material Selection

Specific polyethylene has been chosen to manufacture the acetabular liners with a high impact strength, tensile strength, and yield strength.1

Blue star

Cross-Linking Process

The selected polyethylene is subjected to a radiation cycle to facilitate cross-linking of the polymers and enhance wear resistance. The mechanical properties of the material are maintained.

Blue star

Vitamin E Treatment

Following irradiation, Vitamin E stabilizes any remaining free radicals and continuously prevents oxidation. The presence of Vitamin E eliminates the need for remelting, resulting in improved mechanical strength.

Blue star

Machining & Final Sterilization

Liners are machined, cleaned, packaged, and sterilized, which does not reintroduce free radicals or cause any other measurable change to the polymer.
